DBBrowser is a program which can be used to view the structure of databases as well as to run queries against them. The program is written to work with as many RDBMS systems as possible, using the JDBC and a plugin API. Currently, the program supports connections to PostgreSQL, MySQL, Microsoft SQL Server versions 6.5 and newer, as well as Oracle RDBMS systems.
The DBBrowser uses a plugin API to connect to various databases and can be made to connect to any system for which a JDBC driver exists. More information on how to do this will be written at a future time. Until then, you may be able to use the generic JDBC plugin included in the DBBrowser release. It has been reported that the generic plugin works well with FireBird and the author of DBBrowser has used it to access HSQLDB databases.
Scripting support is provided through the BeanShell scripting language . It gives DBBrowser a powerful, Object Oriented, Java-like scripting language. Scripts can be created that will access a database's data and manipulate it using language constructs for which SQL does not provide, such as variables, branching logic, and loops. More information can be found in the documentation on scripting .
